Stone Enjoy by 12.25.17

Great aromas like sniffing a bag of hops. You can even get the aroma while holding the glass a good 6-8 inches from your nose. Phenomenal. Nice sweet hop bite that’s very flavorful and not bitter. A good chunk of caramel malt sweetness rushes in for attention, but generally gets pummeled back by hops flavor. Notable, but not overpowering hop flavor in the aftertaste that lingers a long time. Great beer, but I don’t think my taste buds could handle the onslaught of more than one.   

4.5 out of 5 stars. 

Victory Hop Devil IPA 

Sweet aroma, a bit of strong caramel malt smell. Full flavor, not an all out hop attack like you’d expect based on the name / label. Good balance of hop and malt, with the malt taking a slightly more prominent role. Aftertaste is mainly malt forward, with hints of bitter hops in background that gives way to caramel malt lingering. Left with a slightly harsh impression overall. 

3.5 out of 5 stars.
